Project Release Information

2013-02-14 07:42
This version includes a minor fix to improve output format in verbose mode.
2013-02-12 11:42
This release includes numerous bugfixes and function ports so it will run better and compile
on older systems.

It also includes several new features such as timestamped output,
a -q/--quiet option to suppress stdout,
and conditional exits on -g/--get requests.

On those requests,
siege will now exit 0 if it receives at least one HTTP 200 response.

Otherwise,
it will exit 1.

These last two features have been added to make the program more script-friendly.
2013-02-08 10:14
This release adds -q/--quiet to suppress most output. Quiet can be set at the commandline or inside a .siegerc file.
2013-02-07 11:12
On a --get request, siege will now exit 1 if the transaction doesn't contain at least one HTTP 200 response. This release also allows you to POST in a --get request.
2012-02-17 07:42
This release corrects a thirteen year old bug. If you don't provide a '-f file' argument, siege will now look for urls.txt inside the $sysconfdir you set at configure time.

Project Description

Siege is a regression test and benchmark utility. It can stress test a single URL with a user defined number of simulated users, or it can read many URLs into memory and stress them simultaneously. The program reports the total number of hits recorded, bytes transferred, response time, concurrency, and return status. Siege supports HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 protocols, GET and POST directives, cookies, transaction logging, and basic authentication. Its features are configurable on a per user basis.
